2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was expecting a beer much hoppier (and using NW varieties... it is described as a northwest style beer after all). However, it was good overall, having a quality similar to a slightly watered-down Anchor Steam.

I wasnt too impressed with redhook brewery in making this beer. Amber ale is still a good choice

Not bad stuff but it doesnt have much taste to it. You gotta love ales that still have yeast in the bottom it adds nice flavor to the beer in my opinion

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Bottle pours amber with a medium sized off-white head.   Decent carbonation, good lacing.   Lots of very fine bits floating about, almost appears unfiltered.   Aroma is grain & malts.   Taste is much the same, but with a sweaty sock & ashtray finish.   Definately thin on the palate.   I can see why this is what they offer to BMC drinkers at Redhook.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice middle amber hue, pours a massive creamy head with good retention and decent Brussels lace.
Nose is malt, noticeable hop bouquet, and an off, phenolic wang.
Taste is hops to the front, with what the brewer terms a piney character--and they're right about that. But the hops are very vegetal, without subtlety--like a club to the tongue. The brewer used Saaz, Tetnanger, and Hallertauer--a weird combination for a bitter, but there you have it. I find the hops to be very one dimensional, without any interesting character--no fruitiness, no floral esters--just a base bitterness that lasts and lasts on the tongue.
I like most hoppy beers, but this beer is just too thin, to simple to deserve much attention.

I bought this in bottle ( six pack) didn't last long as this is a very drinkable beer, the taste is very good , almost fruity..but with unfiltered yeast its almost like a hefe-weisen though I know its isn,t.
If you can find it anywere outside Oregon go ahead and buy it a very nice "session" beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 Cloudy orange. Nice mouthfeel; mild carbonation. Smooth and mellow malt flavors with a milk-like sweetness and hints of cookie dough. Hops are only mildly bitter with herbal aspects. Has some cream ale qualities. Overall, it’s a solid session beer, just not overly exciting.

This one has the hazy, unfiltered appearance, with a golden color. When poured, it did not have much of a head. The aroma and appearance were average, and the flavor had a slight bitterness, but not too hoppy. Not a bad beer, but nothing outstanding either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 Rerate Nice copper pour with a soft silky head. Pleasant lemony aroma with hints of spice. Flavor has the same faint citrusy notes with some mild spiciness. Refreshing and a good beer to cook on the grill by. Original 3.2 Had on tap at the Copper Sky Grill in Seattle - did not realize it was a Redhook product until I saw in the grocery store the next day. Has a bit of a honey aroma to it - very pleasing. Dark golden appearance - not copper at all. Not much of a head or lacing. Smooth flavor with some sweet honey notes on the way down. Very smooth drinking - good compliment to the Cheeseburger I had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly golden amber hue in the pour, with a very short lived foamy head. Slightly hoppy with a doughy, somewhat fruity but could not narrow down the exact fruit hints. Semi-sweet in the finish.
